King Henry II Plantagenet dies and is succeeded by his son, Richard I Lionheart. Richard would only spend a small amount of time in England, leaving the administration of his kingdom to various appointed officials. He was not very concerned about England and didn't even learn much English - he was much more concerned with protecting his possessions in France and making a name for himself that would last through the ages.
Clement XIII was elected pope.
